|YesterYear, an 11-strong choir comprised of ex and current members of The
Grand Central Chorus, beat off much larger choirs from Wales and England to
claim victory in the Male Voice Choir competition, despite only meeting up
with Sue, their pianist, the night before!
However, they came down to earth by upsetting the judges in the Barbershop
competition the following day by singing two songs which flouted the rules,
and were severely penalised, finishing last!
On the Sunday evening, they sang some of their more entertaining songs on
the festival show, alongside their wonderful MC, Len Matthews, leaving the
audience in stitches of laughter.
